Rabiu Mohammed was a special guest in the stands as Kuban Krasnodar claimed a slim 1-0 win over Feyenoord in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The Ghana midfielder had earlier in the day been unveiled as the club’s latest signing.
The former Evian TG man proceeded to take his place in the director’s box at the Stadion Kuban to watch his new Russian club secure a slim 1-0 win over the Dutch giants.
A 60th minute strike by Senegalese Ibrahima Balde handed Kuban the vital 1-0 lead in the first leg match of the Europa League playoffs.
The side will now shift their attention to their domestic campaign where Rabiu could be making his debut as Kuban hosts Ural on Sunday in the Russian top flight.
